Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield: Fernando Forestieri backed to make difference


Sheffield Wednesday are looking for a second Wembley final in two years following their 1-0 loss against Hull City last season.

What are the odds for Sheffield Wednesday vs Huddersfield?

Here's what you need to know about Wednesday's vital match this evening.

However, viewers can turn onto Sky Sports 3 from 7.30pm to watch 15 minutes of previews before the kick-off. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

How did Huddersfield get to the play-offs?

After an opening half in which the two teams failed to muster a solitary shot on target, Huddersfield at least opened the second with greater tempo although it was the visitors who threatened first.

And he also shares his mentor's larger-than-life personality, wildly celebrating every Terriers goal.

What was the result last time out?

"It was to visualise to the players how far away it was - the last time they were in the Premier League".

The captain believes this will give Wednesday an edge going into the play-offs.

Sheffield Wednesday are now unbeaten in their past eight games against Huddersfield in all competitions.

And Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal will be hoping that 24-year-old Adam Reach can add to his three goals and four assists with another telling contribution or two to fire Wednesday to Wembley.

Although the Portuguese boss' work still has its detractors.

As Sheffield looked increasingly content to settle for the away draw, Wagner threw on German forward Collin Quaner in search of the goal Huddersfield surely would have felt they needed from their home leg.

But the capitulation of Leeds meant they secured their spot in the top six with a game to spare.

Wednesday are chasing a second successive play-off final while Huddersfield have been the division's surprise package, even to Wagner, after four bottom-half finishes.

But first, Wednesday must overcome Huddersfield at Hillsborough later this evening with the side's playing out a goalless draw at the Kirklees Stadium on Sunday.

"Usually when he plays well, the team plays well - Aaron is the heart of our team".

David Wagner's revolution at Huddersfield Town is an admirable one but fellow Yorkshire club Sheffield Wednesday continue to be a bogey team.

"To be honest, I didn't expect us to be in this position at the start of the season".
